Kathmandu, May 6
Ruling Nepal Communist Party general secretary Bishnu Paudel says he is ready to face action if he is found guilty in the reported misappropriation of government land in Baluwatar of Kathmandu.
Speaking at a meeting of the House of Representatives on Monday, Paudel demanded that the government launch an investigation into the issue and book the culprits at the earliest.
“I wish there would be a serious investigation into the Lalita Niwas land scam; the truth be revealed; and the culprits be punished as per the law,” he told the meeting, “I am ready to face any kind of action if found guilty.”
Paudel said he would welcome the government efforts to protect public land from illegal individual ownership.
